Dress Elegantly at Home, Make the House an Elegant Destination, Feed on the Word, Not on the News

Father, hear the prayer we offer:
Not for ease that prayer shall be,
But for strength that we may ever
Live our lives courageously.

Dress First Class, Children and Art, Don't Spend Your "Attention Money" on the Media, Pioneer Ribbons Ep. 5

Near the end of this video I suggest the best social distancing is putting a lot of distance between you and the major news media, for various reasons.

How to Draw Flowers by Watermill Press

The Great Outdoors in the the Paintings of Hans Dahl

 Painting by Hans Dahl

Hello Ladies,

I'm getting a few things finished around here so I can show you on my next video.  In the meantime, please look up the lovely paintings of Hans Dahl. There was a father and son who both painted and one of them has a different middle name; not sure about all the details.

God meant for the human body to benefit from the fresh air and sunshine, and the sea, so that is why I love these paintings. Of course I admire the clothing and hairstyles too and the happy faces of these lovely ladies.

Keep drinking hot tea. It flushes out toxins and impurities from your body and has throughout the ages proven to be a wonderful aid to physical health and the ceremony creates well-being.

Everyone Dressed Before Anything, Home Life Naturally, The Economy in Biblical Perspective, Tea Time

Many of the books published by Victoria in the 1990's had lovely end-papers 
like this one I reviewed today in the video:

This is the YOUTUBE LINK I recommended in the video.

Crafts From Paper Bags and Boxes

Hello Dear Ladies,
Above you see a beautiful vinyl tote I got for a dollar at Dollar Tree today. The store employees were working hard unloading a new shipment of all their supplies.  This also came in gray and dark blue. 

While I am getting ready for the next Homemakers Broadcast I wanted to remind you of the several pages of crafts I made from boxes and paper bags, here
Please be sure and go to "next page" until you reach the end.
It is even possible to make a picnic basket from a box or paper bag.

This link is a good one for Australians and New Zealanders, as it has autumn crafts from brown paper. You could use any kind of paper or boxes you like:
We are getting our bags back now, in the grocery stores, so there will be craft material. But if you don't have it in your area, there is plenty of packaging materials just from your groceries in the kitchen. Even tin cans can be made into some beautiful things.

Regarding videos vs. writing, most of the things I speak of on my videos have been written down in previous posts. Just go into my archives listed on the side bar of previous months and years and you will find them.  I will be having posts that are not videos, probably, every other post. 

See you soon!

Appearance is Therapy, Don't Waste the Day, Build One Another Up, Book Review


Women Reading in 19th Century Realist Paintings

Hello Ladies,

I hope everyone is able to focus on the tasks at home, on teaching and nurturing children, on being a light and a stable influence at home and anywhere else.

As I rarely discuss politics or the news here, I would like to point you all to the Thinking Housewife site where she has for several pages posted about the current crisis, which has a lot to do with fear. As I have talked a lot about the debilitating effect of fear on recent videos, I thought some of you can benefit from this.  It is not for the faint hearted but it offers an alternative to the media hype. So please click on the title in the large blue script and go to it. At the end of each of her pages there is an "older entries" button. Please keep reading when you have time, all of her older entries on this subject.

Also go to the newest Ron Paul Video. (click the words)

 Because I like the Victorian era, a lot of people have jumped to wrong conclusions, one being that I don't believe in reading or education. That is entirely untrue. I educated my own children all through highschool and I have thousands of books to prove it.  I do read "the other side"'s  news media just to see what they are up to, but I do not believe in it.

Please check out this BRILLIANT POST here by someone who was raised right ;-)
 I will be trying to find the names of the artists and the names of the paintings later on. Until then, I thought you might enjoy Thinking Housewife. in these uncertain times.

If you are more interested in research, check out The Amazing Polly

In a new video I plan to discuss how to make life "certain" when the world says that it is "uncertain."

I'm hoping to get that video done today.

De-Gloom Your House, Developing Faith, Book Review

Normal Things.

Pictures of my outing today.
Stores open, fully stocked. Parking lots full. People everywhere.

I did not get a picture of the full parking lots or the fabric store, post office, and other places where people were doing business. 

I tried to avoid taking pictures of people, so I waited til I found areas that no one was shopping in, and I stayed in the store quite awhile to get these pictures.  It is not considered proper to take pictures of people without their permission, if the pictures are going to be published on the web, and that is why the people aren't in the pictures. But there were people everywhere in this grocery store. It took quite a bit of effort to avoid getting anyone in the photos.

30 Things to do at Home

Note: the purpose of having 30 things to do was based on a month of 30 days. If you could say "yes" to these questions every month, you certainly could be bored with nothing to do.

Listen to "When Queens Ride By" written in 1932

Ladies, please listen while do your homekeeping/homemaking.

It is printed online here

It was also made into an episode on The Loretta Young Show (and I once saw it) around 1962, but seems to be an unavailable episode. I'm continually looking for it.

In the video I read from the story that it was written in 1888 but another source said 1932.   I think the latter is more likely because of the way she described the cars on the highway.
